Little known luxury Lamborghini 4×4 with 400hp V12 is for sale and the price is amazing
A STUNNING Lamborghini 4×4 goes under the hammer – but many people don’t know it ever existed.
These days most luxury brands have a large SUV, but in the late 1970s it was only Lamborghini that dared to consider one.
In 1977, Lamborghini considered building a fancy 4×4 to sell to the US Army called the LM001, but that plan never materialized.
Lambo went ahead anyway and developed the LM002, which was instead sold to the public as a luxury performance SUV.
